The camper is out of storage and in the driveway!!! YEAH! Mark is working today but as soon as he gets home we will opening it and washing it and getting ready to go camping. This week is going to seem really long. Friday after work we will be going camping. I hope the weather stays nice so we will be able to have a good weekend. Maybe if we get it all done tonight we will take it to the campground tomorrow. You just never know. We are all so ready to go camping. It was so nice out yesterday, sunny and 80. Perfect. It seemed like such a long winter this year, I am more than ready for warm weather.
Tuesday I took John (one of the twins) to Eastern Michigan. He really liked it there and has decided that is where he is going to go to college. He signed up for his fall classes. He goes to orientation for 4 days, It is over Labor Day weekend and then they start classes on the 3rd of September. Josh is going to go to Grand Valley State University. His orientation is July 21st. His classes will start on August 25. It is all coming so quickly. Thier graduation party will be June 28, the acutal graduation ceremony is June 15th. It is all going to be so much fun. And a little sad.
I still have a little bit of the funk left with me but it is getting better. I am making myself get out there and do things instead of just sitting at home and thinking about all the changes that are going to be coming for me. I have found a few new things to get involved in so that when the boys are gone and I don't have to run to track or cross country meets or basketball games or cook and clean every night, I will have some other things to do already in place. Who knows I might just really learn to enjoy not having my kids around 24/7. Might take a while to get used to but............ we shall see.
Aiden is here this weekend. He is coloring a picture and watching cartoons right now. He is in need of a little nap but doesn't seem to want to slow down so I am having him at least slow down for a bit. Maybe he will fall asleep while he is coloring!
I think that I will go lay down on the couch for a bit and see if he lays down with me. A nap just might be good for both of us!
